Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The Tennessee regulations for identifying hazardous waste follow the federal regulations, but are stricter than their federal counterparts in that the state has not adopted in full, but rather limits, several of the federal exemptions. Consequently, the state considers more wastes to be hazardous waste than is the case under the federal program. Tennessee has adopted the federal conditional exemption from the definition of solid waste applicable to cathode-ray tubes (CRTs) without any additional state provisions and has adopted the federal conditional exclusions from the definitions of solid and hazardous waste for solvent-contaminated wipes with minor and not significant changes.

Administration and enforcement. The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation's (DEC) Division of Solid and Hazardous Waste Management is responsible for administering and enforcing the state's hazardous waste identification and classification rules.
